The thing about being constantly busy with a lot of things to do and so little time to do them is that you tend to forget about some of the things you would need to do. Of course, that and the lack of time for the things you want to do (there is a difference between things you need to do and want to do, after all), like maybe traveling around the world, reading your entire backlog of books that are just sitting in your room waiting for your attention (and I got a tower of ’em), working on your video game project which has been pending for who-knows-how-long now, updating your blog constantly…you know, stuff like that. I could probably create a thick-volume book containing all the things I want to do (and would probably do) if I wasn’t concerned about funds and if time is on my side.
Unfortunately, time waits for no man–or woman. And, it doesn’t like to slow down either, especially when you desperately wish it could prolong a moment, or maybe delay something you’ve been dreading.
Anyways, the point is, I got so little time now–especially since I have work to contend with, along with the imminent release of my second book–that I tend to forget to update my profile (author, or otherwise) from the couple of social media networking sites I am a member of. Heck, I can’t even remember the last time I drew and uploaded my artwork on DeviantArt or posted any updates about the video game I’m working on even though I had constantly made mental notes to do both of those things.
So, why am I blabbering on about that? Well, I recently got accepted–or maybe the term I should use is ‘verified’?–for the Goodreads Authors Program. Which means I got myself a new profile online. And, naturally, that would mean I would have to update it–which I will, constantly at that especially since it’s a social media that’s related to books (which I l-o-v-e. Love!). And that just reminded me of the other online profiles I have which I had neglected. Heck, I haven’t updated my background in Twitter yet or my About Me page here in my blog! *facepalms*.
So, while I am listening to Mr. Keith Urban’s newest album, “Fuse”, I am writing this mostly to remind myself that I need to do both of that, along with updating the info on my Author Profile in Goodreads, adding the books I have read and am planning on reading…which probably counts around a couple of hundred books. I told you I love to read.
